CAPTAIN & THE KEELS! An all-star lineup of musicians from the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Triangle of North Carolina — serving up the very best of West Coast smooth "Yacht Rock," right here on the East Coast.
Remember a time when ‘Smooth’ ruled the musical universe? After the angry protest songs of the 60’s, and before the gansta’s raging rap of the 90’s. When Boz Scaggs, Kenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, Toto, The Doobie Brothers, Michael MacDonald, The Eagles, Hall & Oates, Michael Jackson, Steely Dan, and Chicago all jumped into a giant Hollywood recording studio’s waterbed together, and incestuously made ‘smooth, not war.’
As a result, “Yacht Rock” dominated the airWAVES for a decade — then, suddenly, sadly, disappeared smoothly over music’s fickle horizon. BUT, alas, an entire generation of smooth music lovers, having previously walked the plank of modern radio, are rising up from the dark, bottomless depths of punk, rap, electronica, trance and death metal...and, sailing to their rescue...CAPTAIN & THE KEELS!
Dance the night away, sing along, or chill out on the decks of Captain & The Keels yacht of smooth, to the hits of your favorite Yacht Rock artists from that incomparable decade of smooth. There is no skimping on the original sounds with this band. With five horns, a half dozen vocalists, and percussion galore, this is the most authentic yacht rock revue in the country . . . and you'll recognize every note, even if you're three sheets to the wind.
Yah Mo B There?
